a piece of royalty – “Victoria”

A contemporary yet traditionally designed piece of royalty is here Victoria – a silver-studded lapis lazuli necklace, brimming with opulent Victorian beads!

The centrepiece has three large ornate Victorian beads, to add a glam and shine!

With round and rich lapis and silver beads for the pair of wholesome-looking ear-drops, and a solid necklace, this necklace is bound to remind you of glorious times, and days of abundance… So why not escape into one?

Lapis lazuli is a true blue royal loyal!! …A favourite of the monarchs, since ages! Many lapis inlaid jewellery and artefacts can be found in several ancient palaces, churches and tombs! The deep bright shade of this stone holds ancient wisdom and truth. Lapis promotes intuition, creativity,  aids communication and interpersonal harmony, and provides a sense of inner calm and peace….

Even after years pass by, the allure of Victoria shall never fade… This would be one coveted possession, and a classic for all times! 

Victoria holds that priceless ‘vintage feel’…in your life!

Necklace – “Hima”

“Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae”

“Hima” – soft, gentle, and pure….

If anything could match the soft and fresh purity of snow, from the gem world, it is the flawless and gentle ‘White Agate!’ As you gaze upon a string of white agates, you are lost in the reverie of their gentle magic – one that soothes and refreshes the mind and the heart, at the same time… Much like how snowflakes feel, as they gently caress your skin! 

White Agate is indeed a stone that soothes, calms, relaxes, and comforts the spirit with its pristine pure vibrations… It is a stone that slowly works, to bring in healing light and strength. It is angelic stone..

Hima is quintessentially, this ‘Snow Angel’, who embodies beauty, grace, and a sheer sublime serenity. As a piece of jewellery, Hima is bliss! 

The subdued sheen of brushed-silver offers an attractive harmonious blend to the soft white opaque. The Silverine touch of the exquistely carved connectors and spacers, lends the necklace a heavenly feel…..

Double layered in white agates, Hima, despite its modesty, is definitely striking in beauty!!

Necklace – “Sakura”

“Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae”

If ever, a necklace can communicate the sweetness, simple beauty and fragility of human life, it would be “Sakura”……

DSCN8328

the sweet “Sakura”

“Sakura”, means “good”, “virtuous”, “respectable”. The cherry blossoms symbolize the renewal and resurgence of the beauty, grandeur and glory of life in all its beauty, while parallely implying the transience of all this glory. Yet, despite its brief splendour, life is still beautiful, and worth living! Every beautiful moment can be cherished…

On similar sentiments does Necklace “Sakura” speak. Every stone of Rhodochrosite bursts with love, every bead of Shell pearl brings in a small measure of peace… The beads look charming to behold! In its own quaint and quiet way, “Sakura” blooms and blossoms…

Cherry Blossom….

Made of deep pink Rhodochrosite, and Baby pink Shell pearls, “Sakura” brims with love, innocence, and of healing of matters related to the heart, just as pink gemstones are wont to!

The necklace is of a simple design – the Shell pearls alternating with the Rhodochrosites, with simple daisy spacers, and a pair of silver beads highlighting a differently shaded shiny bead of Shell pearl, in the centrepiece… The subdued lustre of the pearl and the deep blushing pink of Rhodochrosite harmoniously blend into each other!

Rhodochrosite is a stone that integrates physical and spiritual healing through the heart. It relieves stress and anxiety, kindles love, self-love, and energizes the soul through the warmth of its being!

Shell pearls have the essence of the “Mother of Pearl’ in them, and therefore, besides their beautiful radiant smooth exterior, there is this pure calm feel of the moon, when you wear them!!

Jhansi –  with the spirit of the Indian soil….

Indian agate is a very modest stone. Not many know its range of potential healing properties. Please read the following write-up on Indian agate…..

Courage | Strength | Self-Confidence | Good Luck

Healing| Protection| Removes Negativity

“Indian Agate is a great aid for meditation and is a powerful healing stone. Indian agate gives physical strength & emotional security. It is also a good protection stone.

India Agate Gemstone and its multiple qualities were known to the ancient sages, the scriptures written by them were either destroyed or buried with them. As a custom, today’s rishis, sadhus and fakirs (Sages) opt to wear the agate stone without knowing about all of its hidden qualities.

The naturally forming Indian Agate Gemstone breaks away from its place of origin and flows through the streams emerging out of the mountains. When these stones reach a particular spot in the river rolling in the waters, on Purnamashi (full moon) day at a certain time they come in contact with the full moon energy.

Apart from absorbing its lunar energies, it also takes on different colours and watermarks. They are then ripe with the human healing energies and powers to banish and ward of bad luck, evil spells and misfortune, in every sphere of life, that one may have been carrying over his or her shoulders for quite a while.

Ancient lore has it that, in particular, Indian Agate gemstone has a mysterious influence on a particular wearer. It is learnt from Upanishads and Puranas (Ancient Hindu Scriptures) that beggars turned kings after using the particular and correct Indian Agate gemstone advised by the Sadhus (sages) of the time.”

Indian Agate is quintessentially Indian, sacred and powerful, Lapis, wholly royal, and Pink Agate, truly beautiful. Therefore, inspired by their combination of divine power and beauty, “Jhansi” came into being!

Made of Indian Agate, a pair of Moss Agates, Lapis Lazulis, and Pink-red Agates, the ancient and regal “Jhansi” is a stunning antique piece of jewellery in subdued colours. The metal pipes and the quaint Tibetan pendant, blending in well with the colour of the beads, enhance the texture, spirit, and feel of the necklace! The pair of striking blue Lapis and Pink Agate beads with filigree spacers lend it a very ethnic charm!

Truly, Jhansi, has a sacrosanct strength, – one from the Indian soil!

Hematite is a stone that is both beautiful and strong. Hematite is sought after for its strengthening properties at the physical level. Hematite strikes a balance between the two hemispheres of the brain. It improves blood circulation. It is a stone that imparts security and safety. The sheen of this stone is very attractive. The common colour of Hematite is black. Besides, there is another less common iridescent variegation of it,  called ‘Rainbow Hematite’, that holds in it, the entire spectrum of colours!

It scintillates, sparkles with the colours of the peacock, colours of the rainbow! So, here is Naira, an aesthetic combination of oval, crystal-cut rainbow hematites, strung together, with oval brass beads and lustrous golden brushed beads in the centrepiece! The modest pendant with a golden crown, pairs well with the pretty earrings, and complements the sparkle of the rainbow hematites….

Necklace – “Madhuparnika”

“Om Sathguru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae”

Madhuparnika

Imagine how it feels to start the day, standing in front of the sacred Tulsi (the Holy Basil) plant….with the early slant of light, streaming in on its leaves, …the fresh water, giving out the fragrance of the wet soil, ….the cool breeze creating a feeling of Divine Silence, and… that Silence birthing a scent of its sweet leaves….soft, gentle, sacred…

This is the feeling Madhuparnika” (meaning, – “Sweet Leaves!”) creates….

Madhuparnika is made of three stones – Unakite, Rhodochrosite and Coral.

Unakite is a stone of the Earth, and resonates with the heart and the mind. It holds vibrations of firm yet gentle grounding, solidarity, peace, fertility and sound health. Rhodochrosite exudes a soft and gentle love. Coral is a stone that strengthens the circulatory system, at the physical level.

It is therefore, no wonder that Madhuparnika flows with the sweetness of strength and secure love… just like a mother’s love…or rather, just like the Divine Tulsi Herself!

With just a pair of Coral cylinders, and Rhodochrosites in the centrepiece, this sacred Unakite necklace, does look strongly satisfying to look, hold and feel…

Stay grounded, and nourish yourself with this piece of motherly love, and your roots shall grow strong!
